Item Description

Yellow sapphires are rare from the famous gem deposits of Ratnapura, Sri Lanka, but this cutie is doubly rare, because sapphire doublets are extremely rare from this famous locale. The gemmy and lustrous tapered crystals are pristine and have classic, very well-striated crystal faces. You will very seldom see yellow sapphires as doublets in this quality. 13.82 carats.
